Titleist Vokey SM7 Raw wedges now available via WedgeWorks

Published

on

WedgeWorks customers asked and Vokey delivered: SM7 wedges are now available in a raw finish.

The tour-preferred finish is available in all 23 SM7 right-handed loft, bounce and grind combinations. On the left-handed side, the six most popular bounce and grind options are also available.

SM7 Raw wedges feature Vokey’s proprietary heat treatment for enhanced groove durability (raw wedges traditionally wear faster than finished models). This is the first time such a heat treatment has been applied to a Vokey Raw wedge.

“Raw means there is no additional finish applied to the wedge, which is made of 8620 carbon steel. It has what I like to call a satin appearance that will start to rust after some use,” says Bob Vokey.

“On tour, the Raw heads give us the flexibility to grind wedges based on a player’s needs. But guys just love the look of that raw steel – some players like it even more as it rusts, kind of like a trusty hammer or another tool. These are their scoring tools.”

For the first time SM7 Raw can be customized with any of the WedgeWorks toe engravings. This includes the traditional tour saw that appears on in-line SM7 wedges, as well as the BV Custom, BV Clover, BV Wings or BV Fleur-de-lis logos.

PGA Tour pros gaming SM7 Raw wedges include, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Adam Scott, Brian Harman, Charley Hoffman, Patrick Cantlay, Webb Simpson, and Russell Henley.

SM7 Raw wedges are available now on Vokey.com, starting at $195 (which includes 10 character stamping, custom shaft bands, and BV Wings grip).

    So $50 more gets you a raw finish, so you can grind it yourself, and if you want a specific steel shaft there is an upcharge? So we’re talking $250 befoe stamping – I like the wedge but give us a break.

That’s why we created the Go-To Adapt Jacket, to be the ideal mid-weight option that provides optimal stretch where you need it as well as enhanced breathability. It’s that reliable and perfect piece that can take you through your day, on course and off.”

Tour Edge launches new Exotics EXS Driver

Published

on

Tour Edge has introduced its new Exotics EXS Driver, which, according to the company, is designed for those golfers who seek a quality, high-performing product, but are constrained by budget.

The main feature of the brand-new product from Tour Edge is its Flight Tuning System (FTS). FTS allows adjustable sole weights to alternate between two different settings. Here’s a rundown of the two settings and what they are designed to provide:

  • FTS1: Nine-gram weight in the heel, three-gram weight in the rear for lower spin, slice reducing shape and a medium launch.
  • FTS2: Three-gram weight in the heel and a nine-gram weight in the rear for medium spin, neutral shape and a higher launch.

The New Exotics EXS Driver will also feature RollFace Technology and a new and improved SlipStream Sole. The RollFace technology incorporates modified bulge and roll on the toe, which is designed to promote straighter shots on balls hit off the toe. According to Tour Edge, the technology, combined with the enhanced sweet spot, makes this the most forgiving driver face ever produced by the company. Along with this, the new wider speed channels on the SlipStream sole are intended to improve club head speed.

Tour Edge President and Master Club Designer David Glod, explained why he believes the New Exotics EXS Driver will have a more significant impact on the market than any other Tour Edge driver before it.

“The EXS driver is absolutely loaded with technology. This is the most technology we’ve ever been able to fit into a design, and each one works in concert with one another to provide the best performing driver possible.”

“The shapes are beautiful, and we utilized only the finest in materials and components. I believe that at the aggressive price point that we are offering, the EXS driver will have its highest impact on the driver market over any other previous Exotics release.”

The New Exotics EXS Driver from Tour Edge will be available to purchase from Nov. 1, 2018, and will cost $299.

Spotted: A new Odyssey “Stroke Lab Three” prototype putter

Published

on

Correction: This story originally reported this putter was in Patrick Reed’s bag. After further investigation, it was not.

Spotted at the 2018 Tour Championship at East Lake was an Odyssey Stroke Lab Three prototype putter. The putter appears to have a milled head and Odyssey’s familiar White Hot Microhinge face insert.

Stroke Lab may be a familiar name for some who know the Stroke Lab putters from around 2017. Mostly only available in the Japan Domestic Market (JDM), the Stroke Lab putters weighed heavier in the head — about 15 grams — and lighter in the shaft (about 29 grams), according to descriptions from True Spec Golf.

Is this a sign of things to come from Odyssey, or just a one-off? It would seem given the familiar name that it’s more the former than the latter, but only time will tell. What do you think about the Stroke Lab Three putter? Do you think it will be available in America at some point?
